French Resist Quilt circa 1800

1,800.00

France | c. 1800

Indigo resist quilt, good condition with wear. Perfect for the end of the bed. The method of creating this finely detailed design requires hand painting the natural linen fabric with wax, dying the fabric with indigo then removing the wax. These quilts are rare and difficult to find. This one, from a collection in southern France, with the pomegranate represents “hospitality” much like the pineapple represents in America and is the most desirable . This piece has the original homespun backing.

Measures 78” x 58”
